Pastor sentenced to death with the death penalty in Iran

Please pray for this pastor. He has been sentenced to death in Iran for converting from Islam to Christianity (The first in 20 years)

The Iranian Supreme Court has upheld the death sentence of a pastor convicted of apostasy and accused of evangelizing Muslims. Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, 34, has been in prison since October 2009, and the appeal of his death sentence was rejected by the Iranian Supreme Court on June 28, 2011. He is to be executed by hanging. If the death sentence is carried out, it will be the first court-ordered execution of a Christian in Iran in 20 years.

H.T Dave Black for bringing this to my attention.

P.S Dave also boldly asks that others link this to their blog and pray for the situation.
